Galilee Booties - Pattern Review

A few days ago, I made a new set of baby booties for my Etsy shop, FlorabellaBoutique.  

Hace unos dias atras, teji un par de zapatitos de bebe que agregue a mi tienda llamada Florabella Boutique

This design is called Galilee Booties by Mamachee Patterns. It is a very well written pattern that comes in sizes for babies newborn to 24 months and adults.  It also includes a color pattern that can be used throughout the construction of the booties.  

Este diseño se llama Galilee Booties por Mamachee Patterns.  Este patron esta muy bien escrito y con muy buenos detalles. Tanto asi, que uno puede completar el set al primer intento. Las instrucciones estan escritas para tamaño de recien nacido hasta bebe de 24 meses. Tambien existe una version para adultos disponible.  Lo que mas me gusta aparte de los detalles es que tambien incluye sugerencias para los cambios de colores.  

Here are some pictures to show you how this design looks:  
A continuación hay fotos para mostrarte como se ve este diseño: 

Hook - Crochet: Size G (Clover, my favorite!)
Yarn - Lana: Vanna'sChoice in Blue and White
                       How I love this Yarn in grey.

Celebrating Chile and Fall Season

September means two things to me: Fall and '18'.

 I enjoy decorating for Fall and cooking with pumpkin. I have lived in this country for so many years that is now a part of the things I enjoy doing. You can check out what I have cooked using Pumpkin in the past Pumpkin Cheesecake, Pumpkin Ravioli, my favorite White bean and Turkey Stew served in Pumpkin Bowls.

I just saw this recipe for Pumpkin French on Pinterest that I really want to try. What are you making with Pumpkin?

Pumpkin French Toast - Sounds amazing!!! 

 I also enjoy decorating for "18", Chile's National Holiday (like the Fourth to the US). That means, I make Chilean food, we make crafts related to Chile, and make handmade decorations using crochet for the holidays. My first decoration coming up is a banner made using the national colors: blue, white, and red. I also crocheted the letters to spell C-H-I-L-E. I still feel like the banner is missing something, so I'm still calling it a work in progress. But it's hanging in my living room and my daughter has learned how to spell Chile thanks to it. My son is learning to recognize more letters thanks to that banner being on the wall. It's a win-win for everyone. :-)

That's the latest going on here! 

Hope you are having a great week!

Free V-Stitch Dishcloth Pattern - Patron gratis

Summer in Florida is really hot. Like steamy hot. I think it’s great, especially when we have a pool nearby and palm trees all around. Oh, how I love summer! This week, for the first time in several weeks, I felt a breeze while walking home, which made our time outside so much more enjoyable.  Thinking of summer and this breeze, which was a total gift from God, I designed the “Summer Breeze Crochet Dishcloth” – a free, easy, and quick pattern that I am sharing here with you all available in English and Spanish.

When you make it, please post a picture in the comments or post it to Instagram with the hashtag #CrochetwithFabi or #CrochetconFabi so that I can see all your lovely creations.


Cotton yarn   (lana de algodon)
Crochet Hook – Size G (4mm)
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends 

Chain 37 – Cadeneta de 37
In order to crochet the V-Stitch you have chain a multiple of 3 plus 7.
Para tejer este punto V, tienes que tejer una cadena que sea multiplo de 3 mas 7.

In this case, I chain 37 (30 is a multiple of 3 {10 x 3}, + 7 = 37)
En este caso, hice una cadena de 37 (30 es multiplo de 3 {10 x 3}, + 7 = 37)

Row 1: DC in 4th chain from hook (the first three skipped chain will make your first dc).  Ch 1, skip the next chain. Then do the V-stitch in the chain right after the one you skipped (dc, ch1, dc), then skip 2 chains --- Repeat section in green until you have 3 stitches left. The first two stitches you will skip and then you will dc in each of the final two stitches.  Chain 3 and turn.

Fila 1: Vareta o Punto Alto en 4ta cadeneta desde el palillo. Los primeros tres puntos saltados, contaran como tu primera doble vareta. Hace una cadeneta, salta el siguiente punto, y despues hace el punto V, que consiste de Vareta, 1 cadeneta, vareta, salta dos cadenetas.  ---- Repite la seccion en verde hasta que te queden solo 3 puntos. El primer punto lo saltas y despues haras una vareta en cada uno de los ultimos dos puntos.  Hace una cadeneta de 3 y gira tu trabajo.

Row 2: Skip the first dc, dc in 2nd dc, ch1, skip 1 ch, work V stitch all across. When you have only 3 stitches left,  ch1, skip next dc, dc in each of last 2 stitches.  Chain 3 and turn.  (basically, do a V-Stitch in the middle of each v-stitch from the previous row)

Ronda 2: Salta el primer punto, haz una vareta o punto alto en el Segundo punto, haz 1 cadena, salta 1 punto, y continua con el punto V hasta el final.  Cuando te queden solamente 3 puntos, hace 1 cadena, salta la siguiente vareta o punto alto, y termina con un punto alto en cada uno de los ultimos dos puntos.  Haz una cadena de 3 y gira tu trabajo.  (en otras palabras, haz un punto v en el centro de cada punto v de la fila anterior)

Row 3 and on: Repeat row 2.

Fila 3 y mas: Repite la segunda fila.

Hope you enjoy this breezy pattern! You can make a set in all kinds of colors in little time. I made mine in yellow and turquoise, two of my favorite colors. I totally love them and I’m pretty sure I will be making more items for my household using this stitch.

Do know that this stitch can used for blankets, pillow covers,  carseat covers, and so much more! Just follow the basic rule: multiple of 3 + 7 and you’ll be all set.

Happy Crocheting!
